Film Mom: Does Your Kids' Peer Pressure Change Your Mind About What Movies They See?

Family Film Mom is a weekly column about family entertainment for parents with kids (and kids with parents) by Tara McNamara, the editor and founder of KidsPickFlicks.com.

After telling my preteen daughter Riley for years that NO, she may not see The Twilight Saga movies, I’m reversing my course. Why am I caving? Peer pressure. At least that’s why I took the time to reconsider. As you may know, Everybody gets to see the Twilight movies. Do you know Everybody? Everybody gets to go the mall, trick or treat, wander the neighborhood, traipse through the amusement park and go to the beach with no parental supervision. Parenting is much tougher once Everybody gets involved.

But now that Riley is in middle school, I believe she’s “matured” enough not to be frightened by the images in the movie. Plus, the Twilight franchise has finally arrived at the last film and Bella has finally arrived as a wiser young woman, as well. Bella is no longer the wishy-washy teen who is willing to abandon her parents, her friends and her very soul for a cute boy. In The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2, Bella is a married mom who spines-up to defend her daughter and her entire extended family. At last, Bella has transformed into a heroine a mother can support.

Once I gave her the green light, Riley eagerly booked a movie marathon with Everybody, because as you know, Everybody loves Twilight. She came home conflicted: how could any girl possibly choose between the buff Jacob or the glistening Edward? Tough questions. I’m happy to let her debate that with Everybody. In the end, here’s what Nobody else can have:  watching Breaking Dawn, Part 2 with Riley; it’s an experience she and I will enjoy together.

Here are three other movies to see with your kids this weekend:

 Lincoln. History comes to life in the most surprising of ways as Steven Spielberg shows us that to pass the 13th Amendment, the 16th president had to become Dishonest Abe.

 

 

 Wreck-it Ralph 3D. It’s not just Sugar Rush that’s moving and sweet in this hilarious yet surprisingly touching and relatable animated film about a video game villain who aches to be the good guy.

 

 

 Hotel Transylvania. This monster movie is still going strong in theaters, possibly because it’s the only movie in theaters that the little kids can enjoy.

 

 

Find out what Riley – and other kids – think about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and other movies at www.KidsPickFlicks.com , where all kids are movie critics.
